First universe modeling using Einstein's full theory of general relativity
Using software that incorporates all of the field theory equations developed by Einstein as part of his general theory of relativity, research teams from Europe and the United States have started developing a model the universe that, they say, will eventually provide the most precise and detailed representation of the cosmos ever created.

Best of the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016
The curtain has fallen and the engines have wound down after another Goodwood Festival of Speed, leaving just a faint whiff of gasoline in the air around Lord March's estate. Everything from Bugatti's ultra-powerful Chiron to the thunderous Aston Martin Vulcan made a run up the hill this year, with a healthy serving of classic racing goodness in between. Have a look through our gallery for a comprehensive wrap of all the priceless metal that put on a show for the world's motoring enthusiasts.

Airvinci ducted fan helicopter prototype set for take off
There's been a bit of a renaissance in designs for personal flying craft over the last few years, with everything from conceptual electric fan passenger craft designed for quiet commuting, to real jetpacks flying around landmarks and jet-powered hoverboards breaking records, and the collection just keeps growing. Now add one more personal flight machine concept to the list in the form of the Airvinci: a ducted fan VTOL aircraft that is expected to start its aeronautical life as a heavy-lifting drone and later have a cockpit added for carrying human cargo.

Sweden cuts the ribbon on electric highway for trucks
Integrating carbon-friendly power supplies into roadways is an idea loaded with merit, as the considerable global interest in this technology seems to indicate. Working to rid its independent transport sector of fossil fuels by 2030, Sweden has opened up its first electrified highway, which will serve as a testbed for a possible wider deployment in the coming years.

Ship-to-shore delivery shows real-world potential of disaster relief drones
When roads, powerlines and other infrastructure are knocked out of action by natural disasters like Hurricane Sandy, getting critical supplies to people in need is all the more difficult. Drones are shaping as hugely promising tools in disaster relief with the ability to quite literally overcome these complications, and a ship-to-shore medical delivery carried out this week with UN and American Red Cross officials on hand has offered a first look at how autonomous flight might come to save lives in the real world.

Venice's water taxis may be going green
Although most people likely associate Venice with gondoliers quietly poling their boats along the canals, the city is also home to approximately 550 motorized water taxis. These watercraft are all equipped with diesel engines that spew exhaust and make a racket, creating both air and noise pollution. With this situation in mind, engineers from University of Southampton spin-off company REAPsystems are developing hybrid engines that could be swapped in.

Stepping inside Zero Latency's free-roam, warehouse-scale VR
Guns? Check. Zombies? Of course. Pickups, level progression, scores, six-player co-op? All accounted for. Zero Latency ticks all the boxes, but the game goes far beyond anything you've ever tried: when one of my teammates comes face-to-face with the undead, he freaks out and leaps backwards – straight into me. I physically feel the force of the collision and stumble, slightly stunned, forgetting that there was an actual human behind that virtual character, in a way I've never experienced before.

Ocean Cleanup Project's trash-catching prototype takes to the angry Dutch seas
Its been a few years since Boyan Slat first revealed his bold concept to clean up the world's oceans, and now we're set to see how his trash-catching barriers fare in the real world. The Dutch entrepreneur's Ocean Cleanup Project has successfully deployed its debut prototype off the coast of the Netherlands, which will serve as a first test-case ahead of a much larger installation planned to tackle the Great Pacific Garbage Patch in 2020.

Small-brained elephantnose fish can think big like humans
Fish may be smarter than we thought. Not only can some recognize human faces, but others can use their senses in a way that it was believed only humans and other mammals could manage. A team of zoologists at the University of Bonn has discovered that, despite lacking a complex brain, the African elephantnose fish can swap between its electrical and visual senses in the same way a person can switch between sight and touch.

Surprise package: Juno nears rendezvous with Jupiter
On July 4, Americans usually celebrate Independence Day with parades, fireworks and picnics, but this year NASA is adding its own contribution to festivities as the Juno deep space probe becomes just the second spacecraft in history to orbit Jupiter. After a five-year journey, the solar-powered unmanned explorer will autonomously fire its main engine for 35 minutes as it starts a 20-month mission to study the gas giant. What will be found remains to be seen, but if history is any indicator, it's likely to be very unexpected.

Those perfect cars you see in TV ads? Here's the Mad Max machine underneath the CGI
This wicked little electric beast looks like a ton of fun to drive, but it's even more impressive than it looks. The Blackbird is a visual effects stand-in for car commercials and filmmaking. Its width, wheelbase, suspension action and engine response can be tuned to match pretty much any car, and its onboard 360-degree cameras can be used to generate perfect reflections when the real car body is overlaid onto it in post production. Those car commercials that look too good to be true? They probably are, and this little beast might be the reality underneath the perfection.

Would you buy a car programmed to kill you for the greater good?
Should a self-driving car kill its passengers for the greater good – for instance, by swerving into a wall to avoid hitting a large number of pedestrians? Surveys of nearly 2,000 US residents revealed that, while we strongly agree that autonomous vehicles should strive to save as many lives as possible, we are not willing to buy such a car for ourselves, preferring instead one that tries to preserve the lives of its passengers at all costs.

I would assume that these cars are made with sensors & whatnot to prevent all of that, but in the event...what if?!
